30 plastic surgeries
For the outer self to reflect Oli’s Korean inner side, Oli has undergone plastic surgeries no less than 30 times to look the part.
In total, Oli has spent approximately $200,000 on his operations. The operations include, among other things, the eyebrows, teeth, facelift, and eyes.
“I used to get teased and bullied at school. Whenever I was dating someone, they would cheat on me or reject me, and I always thought that was because of the way I looked.
“I was always insecure. So I thought, ‘let me change myself.’ And although it’s given me so much happiness, I’ve put myself through a lot of risks and I do admit that,” Oli said in an interview.
